Another Wednesday means another chance to draw a card from my Grateful AF deck and see what it wants me to appreciate today.
I admit, sometimes this deck of gratitude cards can seem rather silly. I mean, dogs in sweaters? Come on. But then I did what I have committed to doing - I gave it a few minutes and I really thought about it. And I get it.
First, I'm grateful for all the dogs all the time. That's a given.
Second, dogs in sweaters? In addition to everything on the card above, let's remember that a dog in a sweater might mean that someone in that dog's life took the time to measure them, work a pattern, and create a wonderful little item of clothing. How sweet is that? That animal must be so loved and so well-cared for. What a wonderful thing that is in a world where so many innocent dogs are left abandoned and alone.
And third, the next time I am out and about and I see someone with a dog in a tiny little outfit, I am going to make it a point to compliment them both and thank them for giving me a reason to smile. And that will likely give that person a reason to smile.
And for all of that, yes, I am grateful AF.
P.S.: That whole "google it" thing? I did it. And it's wonderful. Here's just a few of the results.
